    Sharon123's Note:

    A rich, sweet and spicy (not to mention lucsious) Asian sauce to serve with fish, or to spoon or baste over the the fish while grilling. Great on salmon, also mixed in with rice, but can also be used on tofu or tempeh, grilled vegetables, especially eggplant! Enjoy! Brought to you by the Looney Spoon Phoodies for The Mixing Pot challenge! We may be looney but we are phoodies, after all. We feel it represents our team because we are rich, sweet and spicy!

      I just loved the perfume of the orange zest. I couldn't resist being a bit of a Renegade, so I Spooned it over some beef short ribs, let them marinate a bit, then grilled them to wonderful zesty, spicy, sweet perfection. Made for ZWT #6.

      Mmmmm, oh yum! So many flavors I love, all in one bowl. I made this ahead so I'll have it waiting whenever I have the urge. I can't wait to try this on some tofu and some vegetables...I'm sure I'll think of tons of other things to do with it too. This is a keeper--I'll be sure to keep some on hand at all times!

      This stuff is great! It is definately zesty, and we absolutely loved the flavors from the orange zest and the ginger together. I marinated 1lb of large shrimp in this for an hour then sizzled them up in a frypan, and boy were they tasty! This recipe is a definate keeper. Made for ZWT6: No-Nonsense Nibblers.
